Outrage D'Jour

Remember, none of this stuff actually happens:
The review also found that a specially-equipped car, staffed by a traffic officer and a senior detective, was diverted to catching drivers who were not wearing their seatbelts rather than tracking known criminals....

"One officer told us that he was actually investigating a paedophile ring which he considered to be still active, but at that time the force were under considerable pressure to reduce crime in a particular area, such as burglary.

If he'd arrested the paedophiles it would still have only been one tick in the box, and therefore no more importance was attached to that than investigating burglaries."
Just a hunch, but if Cameron wants more scumbags off the streets, he might want to let cops actually track them down instead of insisting they hand out traffic tickets.
